A lot of Hardy Aimes too but not too sure that's on the brink.

I had a reflective kraftwerk t-shirt from Burro I saw it in The Face and phoned them up (pre internet) cool story bro

Remember Basi too, not knitwear though I had a couple of pairs of their jeans. Had a fair few pairs of Patrick Cox Wannabes my faves where a green snakeskin pair Laughing out loud

Austin Reed …. sadly will be history now.

I keep dithering over whether to get a work suit from them. Not sure of its quality if it has 120 chains in the UK alone but I'll never know if I don't hurry!

Was Pretty Green ever popular?

The only Austin Reed suit I have is serviceable enough.

Had a pair of Ball jeans around 1988. Favourite piece of clothing from back in the day was a Michiko Koshino Motor King black bomber bought from her Covent Garden shop. She still around?

Remember they were a regular feature at Folk/Oli Spencer/Our Legacy sample sales so assuming same distro as one of them?

Think the minimalist Common Projects-a-like phase did them

Found about 6 pairs of Yen jeans in my loft and some Atelier LaDurance(weigh a tonne) - going to get them tapered to a more current style.

Had one pair of yen jeans, may still have them knocking about. I remember they had frayed seems and the pockets hanged of the back, first real pair of expensive jeans at about the 200 mark
